Our front door was in need of work. It had weathered many a storm here in southwestern Minnesota and was beginning to show its age. The door itself had already been replaced once since the remodel in 1981. Now it was time for replacing the frame and everything.
The old door is out.The rot on the bottom of the side lights is why this thing had to go.We were lucky the rot had not yet gone very far into the framing on the bottom. Just a little repair and we were ready for the new door.Installing a new door in an old house takes a lot of careful measuring and some heavy lifting. This is not a one man job. This BayerBuilt door looks like it is up to the job.Weather out here on the prairie requires a storm door. We added a Larson storm door that is colored to match.The exterior construction is done. Now it needs some paint and I have to get at the interior trim work. This should keep out the Minnesota cold and still look good.
We found the price on the frame of the old door. It cost 10 times as much for this door as for our old one in 1981.
